You're My Only Hope.....



So out of 6 partial requests, I've had five rejections. There's one more out there in queryland....and I know it's cliche to say it, but Dear Agent #6, "You're my only hope."

Now the good news: I'm working out the details for my 200 followers giveaway! Yay! I'll let you know asap when I figure things out.

And I just had an awesome flute recital at the Nashua Public Library today. I'll have a You Tube link posted in the next entry, probably tomorrow or Friday.

Yay on the flute recital. Crossing my fingers on the last partial out there.

I'm happy to hear about the flute recital and am still amazed at how much you do! Good luck with the partial; there are always more agents out there and your writing will definitely find a home!

Stephanie Thornton said...

Good luck on that partial! Do you have any more agents left to query?

Crystal Cook said...

I'm sending you the very, very best good luck vibes. :)

And I would love to hear your flute recital. I'm glad it went well. I'll be looking for the video!

Nicole MacDonald said...

good luck! And that's exciting 200 followers

I think it is pretty impressive that you've got yourself 6 partials! Am crossing my fingers for the 6th, of course, but I am not too worried - you clearly have something the agents think is worth working with, so even if the last shouldn't pay off, you must have excellent opportunities to tweak a little here and there to get this MS all the way through :)

Good luck!

Good luck on the partial!

Good luck with the last query!!!

Yay for 200 flippin followers! I love giveaways!

Awesome on the flute recital!!!

Jayne said...

Wishing you good vibes for that last partial, and I look forward to seeing your flute recital! Be so nice to hear you play.

I'll keep my eye out for your You Tube link.

I am hoping for this last one out. If you get a rejection on this, I can't imagine you'd have to give up. So few agents accept fantasy? I find it hard to believe that more won't take a manuscript like yours. To me, any agents who accept fantasy should be willing to take it.

Sutton Fox said...

Fingers crossed on the last partial.

Congrats on the flute recital. I'll be looking for the video.

200 followers is awesome!

Talli Roland said...

That's great about the flute recital. Not so great about the R but I'm sure you'll get there!

Cherie Reich said...

Congrats on 200 followers!!

And, I have my fingers crossed for you for the last partial.

Jaydee Morgan said...

Can't wait for the link to your flute recital and good luck with that last query out there!

Oh Aubrie! Good luck with #6. I'm in EXACTLY the same position. Share a cupcake?

Carol Kilgore said...

Fingers crossed for #6. I know this feeling. Looking forward to the video; you play beautifully.

Can't wait to see the video! I like the changes you've made to your blog. The colors are summery and fresh!

I'm sending positive energy to you and to Agent #6, hoping for good news!

Elizabeth Poole said...

Good luck! And congrats on the recital!

Hi
Those book covers are gorgeous!
Good luck with agent 6!
I sometimes worry about running out of agents to query. I'm about to send out to number 4 and I haven't even had a partial request, so pat yourself on the back for those!

Christine Danek said...

Glad the flute recital went well. Hang in there something will happen. Good luck!

Alexandra Crocodile said...

I'm with Christine - hang in there! Something good will come your way I'm sure:)

Lynda Young said...

Fingers crossed for agent #6

empire76 said...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the query that's out there.

Re: flute recital ... woohoo :-)
How do you find time to write and query etc.?

Susan Fields said...

Surely there are more agents to query than just those. But hopefully Agent #6 will be the one - good luck!

M. Gray said...

I look forward to the clip on youtube! Hang in there, Aubrie. Your persistence WILL pay off.

KLo said...

Wow, I was right near Nashua today ... I should have gone to the library ;)

Good luck on that last partial ... and just wanted to let you know that all I can think of is Princess Leia putting the Death Star plans into R2D2's memory unit.

Smile :)

And I have to add that I totally missed the picture when I posted my last comment ... sometimes I'm pretty dumb lol

Good luck, happy thoughts, prayers, wishes!!!! And I'm looking forward to the link. It's been insane the last two weeks and my 'puter has been dodgy. Grrrrr! I'm so behind on everything.....
